Current and future campus

Current campus

Luxembourg School of Business has adequate infrastructure at its disposal on the Luxembourg territory to sustain the various study programs offered; this infrastructure allows the students to do the work required to achieve the learning goals. Due to the increasing number of learners and resulting space limitation, the school has moved to a bigger campus in May 2021. The campus consists of a 3-floor building with parking spaces and a garden next to the river in 46, Cote d’Eich (total surface is over 1300m2). There are three full size classrooms for 30-50 people, each equipped to handle both the normal class and the hybrid COVID-19 class solution. In addition to that there are traditional learner facilities such as library, breakout rooms, dining area etc. There is also designated office space for faculty members.

Future campus

As a part of strategic development, Luxembourg School of Business is planning to move to the new campus in 2023. Therefore, the school has entered into a long-term lease of the Château de Septfontaines in Luxembourg.

The Chateau will be the future permanent campus of LSB, with enough capacity to host the school in the decades to come. The entire property is situated in a park of around 20,000m2. On the grounds, there will be opportunities to take additional office space as needed. The new facility will include an Amphitheatre, classrooms, study rooms, a library, common grounds for learners and faculty, offices for the administrative staff and faculty, canteen, and residence halls to host faculty and guests.

Luxembourg School of Business, as a supplement to on site learning, uses an online learning management system (LMS). This enables the students and faculty (both local and international) to remain constantly connected, and to continue working on class assignments and related research, whenever and wherever they may be located. The flexibility delivered through such LMS is very important and enables the school’s program to be flexible and to fit with the work schedule of the students. LMS also contributes to performing the continuous assessment of learning and to align students’ progress with the learning goals defined by the school. However, the programs taught are not distance learning/teaching classes; Luxembourg School of Business is not an online school. Distance learning and the IT infrastructure LMS are supplements that increase the quality of learning.

Accreditations of our programs

Luxembourg School of Business offers accredited degree-granting programs as well as a variety of short certificate programs which are not subject to accreditation by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MESR) of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.

Currently LSB has two degree-granting programs which are accredited by MESR in accordance with the accreditation procedure set by the law of 19 June 2009 on the organization of higher education.

Our Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master in Management (MIM) programs are accredited by MESR. These programs are subject to reaccreditation every five years, meaning they are regularly audited by MESR.

Luxembourg School of Business also has institutional accreditation granted by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. You can find more detailed information on the Governement website. You can find out more information about how Luxembourgish accreditation system works on the website of MESR.

Our Executive Education Programs are not accredited by MESR and are not degree-granting programs. Most of our executive education programs are certificate granting. This means that a candidate is issued a Certificate of Attendance or a Certificate of Competency – depending on the structure of the program and the testing structure. These certificates are not degrees and cannot be recognized as degrees.
